Sometimes A Hoax Is Harder

Here's a puzzler: it turns out that the guy who created a web site allowing surfers to turn the Christmas lights on his house on and off via the internet... was simply faking it. He took pictures of his house from several "camera" angles, at varying times of the day, with varying weather. He even went so far as to mount a camera in a neighbor's yard with decoy wiring.

So this was basically Subservient Chicken with Christmas lights. Except that it would have been far easier to simply hook up the website with a AC control switch and skip the hoax.
